IndianaRed (4941) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 1, 2013
22oz Bottle, pours a deep dark brown black with some highlights on the edges. Sturdy light tan head, maintaining a blanket across the top. Very big fresh hop aroma, mainly straight IPAish, very little darkness or roast here, yet. Flavor is mildly roasted but just enough to push it past IPA. The lingering bitterness is a bit odd. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 29, 2013
bottle, at the american section of the 2013 berlinerbierfest where i devoted a fair chunk of the day. dark brown in the sunlight with a thin head; aroma of burning pine and liquid rye; some mars bar flavours with a good grapefruity whack of bitterness nuplastikk (6416) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2013

Black pour with a thick brown head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, and earthy, citrusy hops. Creamy mouthfeel,soft carbonation. The spicy rye comes through along with other roasted malt characteristics and a lingering citrus bitterness. Great finish.

Black with a frothy beige head and thick lacing. Aroma of roast, tropical fruit, citrus, and coffee. Taste is roasty and mildly bitter. Medium bodied and very dry. Damn good. AshtonMcCobb (6871) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 27, 2013
50cl bottle thanks to allmyvinyl.
Appearance - opaque black with a big crema head.
Nose - herbaceous, grassy and citrus (grapefruit). No chocolate.
Taste - grapefruit pith, herbs chocolate in the background. Lime marmalade.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a very dry zingy finish.
Overall - I prefer my black IPAs to be a bit chocolatey as well as haveing the citrus. This is one for the hop-heads. Good though. JBoan (176) - Arizona, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours deep blackish/brown with a nice tight mocha head. Aroma is citrus, pine, spice, roasted malt and some earthy notes. Taste is grapefruit, citrus, bitter hops, pine, roasted malt and little spice in the finish. Medium bodied with decent carbonation that is well balanced. One of my favorite IPA’s in this style. jfb (6575) - GERMANY - SEP 23, 2013
(bottle) pours a deep hazy brown colour with a frothy mahogany head. aroma of heavy tropical fruit, citrus and lime, caramel, earth, light roasted malts and orange peel. flavour is mostly soy sauce, herbal hops and earth, with a light leafiness, acrid toasted malts and no tropical fruitiness to speak of. medium-bodied with average carbonation. ozarkspops (368) - - SEP 22, 2013
Dark dark brown pour with khaki head. Very citrusy aroma. Spicy from rye. Medium roasty. Flavor is also spicy. Citrusy, but a little vegetal from the hops. Medium dry finish.
